Iran angered by Argentine report on bombing of

Iran has recalled its top diplomat from Argentina for talks in an escalating row over the Islamic Republic’s alleged involvement in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center, a senior Iranian official said yesterday in Tehran. Argentine Judge Jopse Galiano asked Interpol on Friday to arrest four Iranians, including former intelligence minister Ali Falahian and Muhsein Rabani, the former cultural affairs officer who Israel believes acted as operations chief for the bomb attack at the AMIA community center, which killed 85 people and injured 200 in July 1994. Iran strongly denies the accusations and has threatened to take “appropriate measures” unless Argentina apologizes. The government source, who asked not to be named, said Iranian attache Mohammad Ali Tabatabaei had been called back to Tehran for consultations.

Another government source told Reuters on Tuesday that Iran was considering cutting back or even severing its diplomatic ties with Argentina over the case. Full Story
